For the longest vase life cut when 1/3 of the blooms are open. Larkspur can also be dried and used to make natural confetti.
To dry, let all but the top three to four flowers open, then pick and hang upside down in a dry place out of bright light for 2-3 weeks.

For fresh flowers, place straight into buckets of clean fresh water and leave them to rest for at least a few hours, this is called conditioning.
